Pessac Léognan Rouge€ 31.52/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
The Wine Advocate – Robert Parker – 91-93/100
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Clémentin de Pape Clement offers seductive scents of warm black plums, blackcurrant cordial and Black Forest cake with hints of mocha, Indian spices and violets. Full-bodied, rich and velvety textured, it fills the mouth with black fruit preserves and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 89-92/100
The 2018 Clémentin de Pape Clément is gorgeous. Gravel, smoke, tobacco, licorice, dark red cherry and menthol infuse this striking, layered second wine from Pape Clément. Aromatically expressive yet also quite dense and layered, the 2018 has plenty to recommend it, especially once the tannins settle down a bit. The blend is 50% Merlot, 49% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot.
